The Kansas City Chiefs are at the Senior Bowl this week in Mobile, Alabama preparing for the 2017 NFL draft by watching practices and meeting with prospects. They’ll meet with a bunch of prospects, both formally and informally. These meetings in Mobile are of the informal nature but they’re still notable.
We’ll hear reports of the Chiefs talking to this player or that player from the Senior Bowl and while it doesn’t mean they’re going to draft that player it gives us a chance to start looking at some of these prospects.
One draft outlet in Mobile reports that the Chiefs talked with Tennessee State CB Ezra Robinson and Tiffin QB Antonio Pipkin at Senior Bowl practices this week. Not exactly your traditional schools but players come from everywhere.
Robinson started off at Michigan State where he had some legal trouble. Then he transferred to Tennessee State where he averaged .5 interceptions per game last year. He’s listed at 6’1 and 180 pounds.
The quarterback, Pipkin, come from Tiffin University, which is in Ohio. ESPN’s Mel Kiper had him ranked as the ninth quarterback in December. He set passing records and averaged nearly 70 yards rushing per game this year. This would probably be a late round type or even undrafted but who knows at this point. This is a great breakdown of his abilities.
